assignment transferred to the other WeBWorK assignments. The form for in-term academic concessions can be found on the math department website, here. Final Exam Requirements A minimum mark of 40% on the final exam is required to pass the course, independent of all others marks in the course. A student who has a total term average of above 50%, but scores lower than 40% on the final exam, will receive a maximum term grade of 45%. For a full description of the final exam regulations, see the UBC Calendar page on Student Conduct during Examinations. In particular, notes, calculators, cell phones and other electronic devices are strictly prohibited from use during the exam. This includes use of cell phones for checking the time. The same regulations apply for the midterm. Scaling Term marks may be scaled, and the scaling may differ between sections. No scaling will be decided upon until all assessments are marked. Because WeBWorK and OSH historically have very high averages, the midterm and final are written to have lower averages. Average marks for assessments are not always shared with students. If you are unhappy with your mark, rather than comparing it to your classmates, consult with your instructor about ways to improve your studying. University of British Columbia Vancouver p. 7

MATH 102 Syllabus Sections will not necessarily be scaled so their averages match other sections. Differences between sections are often an indirect consequence of their meeting times. University Policies UBC provides resources to support student learning and to maintain healthy lifestyles but recog- nizes that sometimes crises arise and so there are additional resources to access including those for survivors of sexual violence. UBC values respect for the person and ideas of all members of the academic community. Harassment and discrimination are not tolerated nor is suppression of academic freedom. UBC provides appropriate accommodation for students with disabilities and for religious observances. UBC values academic honesty and students are expected to ac- knowledge the ideas generated by others and to uphold the highest academic standards in all of their actions. Details of the policies and how to access support are available on the UBC Senate website. Other Course Policies Professional Ethics You are encouraged to work in groups on homework assignments, while recognizing that indepen- dent effort is also crucial to learning. However, any misrepresentation of another persons work as your own is considered to be academic dishonesty. In particular, directly copying someone elses homework will be treated as a violation of UBCs Academic Integrity Code. See UBC’s policy on plagiarism for details. Cases of suspected academic misconduct will be reported to the undergraduate chair. Learning Analytics Data from Piazza might be used to make course decisions, e.g. spending more time on a topic many students struggle with. Your participation in (or absence from) Piazza and the MLC will not affect your course grade.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
